    I think the 'moron indicators' were actually there for people to find a reference on where to click because the buttons tended to lack profile. If you're going to do away with the indicators, try considering making the buttons a little more visible. Perhaps with a clearer outline.

    I'll leave them in, then. They blend in rather nicely with the layout at this point.

    Looking good Rex. I really like the buttons. I especially like that "Post Reply" has a lighting bolt on it, for that extra Zing!

    Yes, I felt that it would be a nice touch since most replies on the Codex consist of zinging. :D

    I like the ugly forum style better. Exitium you messed up again.

    edit: the fag,search,members, etc is too close to the top links making the person require more precision to hit the link they want. The log in/out on the bar should show some sign that you are logged in or out like perhaps take out the IN when you are already in? It kinda hard to tell if your in or not unless you look at the bottom.

    Exitium, while you're at it, make also new buttons for the PM inbox interface instead of the ugly yellow ones. And make the game (etc.) database link for the top menu - it's too cool to be only in the side menu, where it can be overlooked!

    I definitely like the way the site looks as of today. Everything has come together nicely.

    Hey Exitium, I like new buttons, but why there is only the "RPG Codex forum" button on the main page in the 2nd bar instead of the whole forum menu?

    *shock* *horror*

    My God, the forum. It actually looks okay. The menu buttons along the top are a bit hard to read though and the "you have X new private messages" text seems to be missing.

    Pity the titles still suck too.

    That's why we have Monkey. We also aren't dumb enough to inflict our hideous designs on people until our work is actually completed.

    Hey, what the hell happened to the schemes? Don't say you removed everything but the Syndicates just to fit with the forum, Rex! Bring back Solaris, damn you.

    I didn't think anyone was using the others. You actually used Solaris? It's kind of bright, isn't it?

    Uhm, well. For me it was the most visible. I like my text to be dark on bright.

    But it's not the end of the world. Do what you will.

    I was using Aftermath, actually, which I think was somewhat popular. But still, I like all the work Rex has done. It's real purdy and having the forums match the front page is just neat.

    Looks good in 1600x1200.

    Although you could make the second row of buttons appear next to the top row (instead of below it) for us with superior monitors.
